Generic PnP monitor!?

Sorry for posting another thread, but I am going to pull my hair out.... I upgraded to windows 7 and now this thing says that i have a Generic Pnp Monitor? and there is no 3d card listed in the Device Manager besides the Intell Mobile Chipset thing.... I Tried all of the older drivers and they won't let me install them, I tried to manually pick out the card from the list in the update part of Device Manager and when I went to restart the computer windows wouldn't ever open correctly, so I disabled it and now I am just stuck!

Any assistance is muchly appreciated!!!!

Oh and I forgot to mention I'm not sure what 3d card I have is there any way to find out? I thought it was a NVIDIA GeForce Go 7300 but now I am not positive

UpdateNVIDIA GeForce Go 7300--The manufacturer of this system requires that you download the driver for your GPU from their support site.

The GeForce M series and GeForce Go series notebook GPUs use drivers that have been customized by the notebook manufacturers to support hot key functions, power management functions, lid close and suspend/resume behavior. NVIDIA has worked with some notebook manufacturers to provide notebook-specific driver updates, however, most notebook driver updates must come from the notebook manufacturer. Additionally, the desktop GeForce graphics drivers will not install on Geforce M series and Quadro M series notebook GPU's.ProductCurrent

so then I go to Dell.com and they have nothing to download except the intel mobile thing which is older than the one that comes with windows 7???

So now what?

is that for the display adaptor? we need to know your graphic card first, we will get to the base devices later
